Play by Play:

Impact Wrestling opens up with a recap video of what happend last week.

Madison Rayne kicks us off tonight and she makes her way to the ring.

Madsion starts off by saying that this has been the most exciting return to Impact for her. She reiterates that she only came back as a commentator but things changed quickly and she has been creating moments since her return to the ring. She said she created a moment when she defeated Tessa Blanchard and Taya Valykire. She says she will create another moment at Slammiversary when she beats Su Yung for the Knockouts Championship. Last week she said that she was spooked by Su Yung and talked about how she put both Rosemary and Allie in coffins and we haven’t seen them since. She goes on to say that Su isn’t getting the stay at home mom at Slammiversary she is getting the five time Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne. Tessa Blanchard comes out and interrupts Rayne and says that she was waiting for the punchline.

She thinks this is all hilarious and says that this isn’t 2011 anymore and that she isn’t the best anymore cause she is. Tessa says that holding the champion means thag your the best and that she has been in this business before she was born and that she is the diamond of this business. Madison brings up the fact she beat Tessa at Under Pressure and says she has no problem reminding her. Both knockouts are spooked as we hear the ominous laugh and scream from Su Yung. Tessa Blanchard takes advantage of the distraction and hits Madison Rayne with a forearm.

Rich Swann vs Trevor Lee:

Rich Swann makes his way to the ring for his Impact Wrestling debut match.

Trevor Lee makes his way to the ring for the match. The match starts with a game of one ups manship followed by Swann showing off his dance moves. They need get serious and go back and forth with Swann getting the better of Lee and getting a big dropkick that sends Lee to the floor. Rich then looks to ve going for a dive but instead ops to bounce off the ropes and do a flip and stand tall in the ring as we go to break.

Swannthen begins to fight back and pick up the pace. He hits a tilt a whirl headscissors which sends Lee to the floor. Swann then follows up with a springboard flip onto Lee and brings him back in the ring for a two count.

Lee somehow fights back and lands his signature double stomp for a two count. Rime is wasted which allows for Swann to regain control. Jabs and chops are traded but Swann gets the upperhand and hits a hurricanrana spiking Trevor Lee on his head followed by a Phoenix Splash for the pinfall victory.

Winner: Rich Swann via pinfall 

Back from break we are shown what went down at PCW Ultra.

Impact takes us to House of Hardcore and Tommy Dreamer was in the middle of a match and Eddie slips in the ring and cracks Dreamer open with a kendostick then he begins to drive a piece of the stick into his skull.

Moose follows Eddie to the parking lot and ask him what was that about Eddie tells him to leave him alone and walks away.

Back from break and we see LAX in the clubhouse. They are still celebrating from their championship win last week. They ask about K-dog and Konan walks in. Konan gets in the face of King and threats to slap him in the face. King says he was the one who got them back to winning and champions again.

Matt Sydal makes his way to the ring for the match as we go to break. Back from break and the bell rings. Collar and elbow tie up and we have a stand off. Another collar and elbow tie up and Sydal lokks for a handshake. Xavier doesn’t fall for it and begins to go on the attack with bug kicks followed up by a dropckick that dends him out of the ring. Sydal then goes under the ring and comes out on the other side. Dezmond still stays in conteoland goes for a rollup but Sydal is too close to the ropes and grabs the bottom rope to break the pin. Xavier follows up with a huge clothesline but then Sydal gains control of the match and hits a dragonscrew. Sydal then hits a low fireman’s carry into a single leg boston crab but eventually lets go of the mive as he was lokking to be in some kind of pain. Sydal stays on the attack and looks to hit a suplex but Xavier stops Sydal then sends him into the corner and hits a big running splash. Xavier follows up with a snapmare as Sydal rolls out of the ring. Dezmond follows up with a dive over the ropes and he looks to have tweaked his right knee.

Xavier brings Sydal back in the ring and looks to go to the top to finish the match but Sydal pushes the referee into the ropes causing Xavier to slip and allowing Sydal to hit The Chemical Imbalance for the victory.

Winner: Impact X-Divison Champion Matt Sydal via pinfall

Madsion mantains the speed and gets a two count on Tessa. Rayne goes to the apron and slips under Tessa but then gets caught with a hip attack.

Tessa goes to the top but misses and Madison hits a tilt a whirl headscissors sending Tessa into the corner. Madison then hits a sliding clothesline for a nearfall. Tessa reagins control and puts Tessa in the corner and hits an avalanche flatliner from the second rope for a nearfall.

Tessa then lands a big kick into the sturum of Madison Rayne. Tessa looks to hit the hammerlock DDT but Madison counters into a huge crucifix for the pinfall victory.

Winner: Madison Rayne via pinfall

After the match Tessa Blanchard attacks Madison and grabs a chair and looks to hit her with it but Su Yung and the undead bridesmaids make their way to the ring but Tessa braces herself with the steel chair but as they got on the apron Tessa elects to leave the ring leaving Madison alone to face them.

Su Yung then tell the undead bridesmaids to attack Madison followed by Su Yung looking for the panicswitch but the returning Allie makes the save and clears the ring.

Ja’ Von’s Take: The show itself had a different feel to it as they were not in the Impact Zone this week. The show mainly emanated from Saint Clara College but also showed segements from House of Hardcore and PCW Ultra. Overall the show was ok this week as we got two new matches announced for Slammiversary.

My Score: 6/10

Andrew’s Impact Wrestling Results & Match Ratings: 1.12.21

The Go Home to Hard to Kill! After The Good Brothers made an appearance on Dynamite; do we see any new AEW talent invade Impact before the PPV?

Published

on

Coming off a Genesis event that ended with some nice matches and story wrinkles, we come into the Go Home for Hard to Kill! The Impact PPV that will feature Kenny Omega in the main event.

We will probably see something looking like a end to the feud between Eddie Edwards and Sami Callihan, Cody Deaner gets to work out more of his new persona and we might finally see Joe Doering murder someone! Deonna Purrazzo has her hardest challenge to date with Taya Valkyrie, which could be one of Taya’s last matches in Impact if contract questions are to be believed. Rohit Raju and Chris Bey will try to get one step closer to unmasking and unseating the current X Division champion Manik.

Let’s also not forget we get the finals for the Knockouts Tag Titles at Hard to Kill! Inactive for 7 1/2 years, we’ll get a new champion since ODB and Eric Young! Take a look at the redesigned titles, then lets get to the show!

Ratings:

  • Taya Valkyrie w/Rosemary vs Kimber Lee w/Deonna Purrazzo: Kimber wins via Double Leg Cradle – ** ¾
  • Rohit Raju & Chris Bey vs Manik & Suicide: Bey wins via Art of Finesse – *** ¼
  • Deaner w/Eric Young & Joe Doering vs Tommy Dreamer w/Rhino & Cousin Jake: Deaner wins via DQ – *
  • Tenille Dashwood w/Kaleb vs Rosemary: Rosemary wins via Spear – ***
  • Moose vs Matthew Palmer: Moose wins via Referee Stoppage – *
  • Rich Swann vs Karl Anderson: Rich wins via School Boy – *** ½

 

Results:

Taya Valkyrie w/Rosemary vs Kimber Lee w/Deonna Purrazzo

Kimber comes out with instructions and goes right after Taya. Kimber is one of the few Knockouts that Taya isn’t significantly taller or stronger than. Taya kept fighting from the back foot, but Kimber showed some really good aggression and the ability to keep the pressure believable.

Taya started turning things around after she got the knees up to counter a Swanton, but Deonna had a few tricks up her. Taya has Kimber seeing shadows, and Deonna puts her hand on the ropes. Rosemary tries to back Deonna back up the ramp, but before she can do any real damage we see…Susan?!

Susan has Deonna hold her glasses, and she cold cocks Rosemary and they start the beatdown. They hold Rosemary to watch the ring, Taya gets distracted with what’s going on outside, so Kimber grabs her, trips her up and sits down into a cradle.

If the cradle wasn’t a little awkward/sloppy then this would’ve rated higher. Honestly not terrible in-ring and story stuff.

God I hate these stupid paid ads. Tony Khan is not tolerable to listen to, not even from a smarmy heel perspective; he’s just an annoying human. Schiavone of course makes this palatable, but Khan is more cringe than uWu voice.

Rohit Raju & Chris Bey vs Manik & Suicide

The heels take it to TJPs two masked personas! Early on it takes the masked marvels a little bit of time to recover, but when they do we see a lot of signature poses and maneuvers. Pump kicks, lead to planchas and springboards and we just get a lot of good fun from Manik and Suicide while Bey and Rohit keep things grounded, aggressive and story driven.

Rohit is hell bent on taking off Manik’s mask and that does cost him at different points. Suicide goes for Suicide Solution, but Bey hits the Art of Finesse for the pinfall! Manik avoids the pinfall, but his opponents technically pick up momentum.

Deaner w/Eric Young & Joe Doering vs Tommy Dreamer w/Rhino & Cousin Jake

Well Cody Deaner went full WWE and done lost his first name! It’s not a name I would pick, but I guess Cody was already taken by someone else.

While not a bad match to add more interaction between the participants of the 6 man at Hard to Kill, it was really not anything to talk about. Rhino and Doering got caught interfering and thrown out, but then after a few moves Deaner and Jake have a moment. Jake tries to reason with him, Deaner smacks him so Jake takes him out.

Disqualification happens and we get a brawl eventually between all six when Rhino and Doering return.

Tenille Dashwood w/Kaleb vs Rosemary

Tenille applied her usual level of quirky humor to this match. She tried to offer friendship in the beginning, but got sucked in to a little bit of a rag doll from Rosemary. Which continued for a little bit until Kaleb got involved and Hairsprayed Rosemary early in the match.

That gave Tenille a near fall, but the match kept rolling along. Solid action mixed in with Kaleb’s own bumbling because he would’ve been more useful if he put his phone down. When it looks like Rosemary is about to win, Kaleb hits the apron, but Crazzy Steve appears behind him to even the odds. Kaleb manages to sneak the hairspray in to Tenille as Steve runs him off. Tenille is shaking the hairspray but Rosemary sees her, tilts her head and Tenille gets sheepish. Rosemary turns the hairspray on Tenille.

So hairspray plus a Spear equals Rosemary wins. We get a nice little tease to maybe an official Decay reunion. I guess only time will tell.

Moose vs Matthew Palmer

This was a match for Moose to prove his sadistic side and take advantage of a weaker challenger that got one over him last week. Palmer gets occasional flurries, but it’s not believable. Commentary bills him as out of his depth and he’s just an example.

Since the match was intended to make Moose seem vicious and just murder the poor enhancement talent, it did its job. But at no point was the finish in doubt.

Rich Swann vs Karl Anderson

The entire time Kenny’s been in the picture, they’ve put a lot of spotlight on some of Karl’s singles accolades in Japan. So it should come as no surprise that Karl actually came in with a plan and dominated for a good portion. Karl focused on the shoulder and it worked really well for him.

Rich was selling and getting caught by Shotgun kicks and a bunch of other moves, but at least proving to be resilient. Rich manages to catch Karl as Karl starts looking to finish things. A few nice strikes, the over the shoulder back kick and finally Swann’s got something. Karl does stabilize and look for the Gun Stun, but Rich ducks the Gun Stun with a School Boy Rollup and that’s the match!

After the match we get a dressing room brawl between all six heading towards Hard to Kill.

 

Overall Score: 6.25/10

So this was a mixed bag of either predictable matches or solid to good matches. But the segments between were filler video packages recapping stories, and the fact that we got an old TNA or current AEW finish to the episode of a brawl…just because, it’s a played out ending. With that, the episode felt like it was decent, but nothing really special, even though it was a Go Home. To be fair, Hard to Kill probably had all the needed hype off of the card itself, so I’m not sure what more they could’ve done, but something more clever than a dressing room attack to send us home would’ve been cool.

Again, this doesn’t really take away from Hard to Kill, an the announcement of Eddie Edwards vs Sami Callihan being a Barbwire Massacre match is…okay? I mean the last one Impact did was between oVe and LAX; and honestly, it wasn’t that great. I have a little more faith in Eddie and Sami, but death matches are usually all sizzle and no steak in the States. So it doesn’t add anything to Hard to Kill for me, but who knows, maybe it peaked some CZW fans attention somewhere.

Hard to Kill should be a good PPV and here’s to hoping that there’s no awkwardness because it’ll be live (they tend to have audio issues or something technical happens) and please no stupidity with AEW talent. If any more show up, I hope it’s logical and actually kind of cool.

Andrew’s Genesis Results & Match Ratings 1.9.21

The first Genesis since 2018! This one feels more like Destination X since it’s all around the Super X Cup! Do we get another solid ImpactPlus App event?

Published

on

Genesis this year feels like Destination X with having the entire Super X Cup as the main attraction! We also get a generational battle between Jazz and Jordynne Grace. Main evented with the blood feud I Quit match with Willie Mack and Moose!

Now much like I tweeted, Blake Christian is who I’m looking most forward to in this X Cup. He’s been a beacon in the murky landscape of NJPW Strong, and he’s had decent tournament runs this past year. Ace Austin will most likely win the tournament since he needs something to re-establish himself after a few tough losses to end 2020; but I can still hope for Blake.

Also I’ve really been enjoying Moose during this whole TNA Champion reign and since his interaction with EC3. He’s found a great persona and even stepped up his in-ring ability. So this could be a surprisingly fun event.

Let’s find out!

Ratings:

  • Super X Cup: Ace Austin vs Suicide: Ace wins via The Fold – ** ¾
  • Super X Cup: KC Navarro vs Blake Christian: Blake wins via Elia – ***
  • Super X Cup: Cousin Jake vs Daivari: Jake wins via Blackhole Slam – **
  • Super X Cup: Crazzy Steve vs Trey Lamar: Steve wins via King Kill 33 – *** ¼
  • Super X Cup: Cousin Jake vs Ace Austin: Ace wins via Springboard Corkscrew Fold – *** ¾
  • Super X Cup: Blake Christian vs Crazzy Steve: Blake wins via 450 Draping Splash – *** ½
  • Jordynne Grace vs Jazz: Jordynne wins via Reverse Cradle – *** ½
  • Super X Cup Finals: Ace Austin vs Blake Christian: Ace wins via Flash Fold – ****
  • I Quit Match: Willie Mack vs Moose: Willie Mack wins – **** ½

 

Results:

Super X Cup: Ace Austin vs Suicide

Part of the entertainment is that each X Cup participant get a promo before the match. But for Suicide it was a combination of D’Amore, Sabin and Shelley. So it was nice for some inside baseball, like Sabin saying he’s pretty sure it was Christopher Daniels and still might be!

As for the match, it starts off with Ace not realizing who he was facing. He tried to do the paper cut, but Suicide wears gloves so it didn’t do a damn thing. The action was back and forth with a lot of Fulton making his presence known but not physically getting involved, just being a constant distraction.

Hard to really say more than this was just decent back and forth, some nice spots, but Ace gonna be a heel and win thanks to a distraction from Fulton and then The Fold. So to no one’s surprise, Ace wins the first round.

Super X Cup: KC Navarro vs Blake Christian

The promos in the beginning really helped show Blake as the typical humble white meat babyface, and Navarro as the brash mouthy arrogant one. No one is really a heel, but Navarro came in with a Pringles can on his shoulder.

Early on we see Navarro trying to prove to Blake that he’s just as good, if not better than him with mirroring certain moves. Then we get some solid Junior style action with Blake doing a lot of standing acrobatics from Shooting Stars to Planchas, and Navarro was looking for openings. Blake’s style is very calculated Junior risks, and I love how he throws the hesitation Dropkick to a seated opponent. Navarro did well enough, but he was always punching a little above his weight.

Super X Cup: Cousin Jake vs Daivari

This was a match that Jake needed since Cody got some character progression and he got left behind.  The issue comes from the fact that this was a slower more classic style of match; which didn’t really work super well with the fact the first two were faster paced in the same tournament.

Slower work where Daivari took advantage of positioning and Jake’s over eagerness at times, but he started working on the legs too late. Jake had enough power to hit the Blackhole Slam and pick up the win.

Super X Cup: Crazzy Steve vs Trey Lamar

Trey did really good comedy work in this match. Crazzy Steve’s antics kept him rattled, the stuffed monkey had him freaked and Steve used that to his advantage. So early on there wasn’t much wrestling, but good entertainment.

Trey really showed up in this match. Steve had a few bigger moves than usual, like the Avalanche Russian Leg Sweep and a grounded Cobra Twist, but Trey was the star in defeat here. He looked great, his facials were solid (except for a weird tongue flick he did while having Steve in a headlock). But either way, this kid could be something special.

Super X Cup: Cousin Jake vs Ace Austin

Finally we get a great meshing of styles, with a little bit of a hint towards a possible future encounter with Madman Fulton and Cousin Jake. Watching Jake’s power and Ace’s ingenuity was fantastic. Buckle Bombs, catching Ace out of midair, big Slams and Michinoku Drivers, but the fact that Ace won with a variation on The Fold was really great from him.

This is just a really well wrestled match, Fulton did a great job playing bodyguard and not being as obnoxious in the wrong spots as the first match. Great stuff.

Super X Cup: Blake Christian vs Crazzy Steve

Steve utilized a different part of his crazy kit here by interacting more with his monkey than his opponent. Lots of conversations and even a friendly hug between Steve and Blake.

Blake seems slightly confused but it doesn’t really throw him too far off. Things start slow until Blake accidentally kicks the monkey out of the ring. Then Steve goes a little crazy…err…crazier? Steve did a great job in helping to display Blake’s kit, a nice Split Legged Moonsault and the 450 he used as the finish. Blake looks like a solid challenge for Ace, but you gotta wonder if they’re gonna continue breaking down Ace or if this was manufactured to get him some momentum.

Jordynne Grace vs Jazz

Things start off respectful, but then both women get to slugging it out. Some powerful charges to knock one another down, haymakers and we get a nice women’s Hoss fight. Jordynne has an early advantage, but Jazz trips her up on the apron, then starts laying forearms across her face and just dominates for a few minutes.

Jordynne manages to absorb a Butterfly Suplex and stop the follow up move, sweep the leg and now we get some high impact attacks from Jordynne.  Spinebuster, Vader Bomb, an Aja Kong style backfist, and really great power couldn’t quite finish off Jazz. Jazz drops Jordynne on her face (on purpose) and it’s really close in the waning moments of the match. Jazz runs Jordynne into the ropes, O’Connor Roll, Jordynne rolls through and picks up barely a 3 count! Hard hitting, and pretty fun honestly.

Super X Cup Finals: Ace Austin vs Blake Christian

Blake comes out holding his ribs, reminiscent of the Lion’s Break Tournament, so even though I would like Blake to win; it’s leading more to an Ace win.

Surprisingly, this is a hell of a match. Ace was on the receiving end of a ton of offense, even when there was a dodge, it was close and cool. Big high flying attempts like Corkscrew Sentons, 450 Splashes, Blake went for Elia again and missed. There was a really solid locomotion cradle spot, which has a small hitch but not enough to look sloppy.

At the end we see Ace go for the card, but Blake grabs the hand and crumples it between. They go back and forth trying to push one another off with their legs, in that Lucha rolling arm lock spot. But as Ace pushes back, Blake stands, and before Blake can do anything; Ace follows the momentum, twists and hits The Fold for a win out of nowhere.

This was a tremendously great match, showed a lot for Blake in the loss and validates some of Ace’s ego returning.

I Quit Match: Willie Mack vs Moose

This had all the tones and feelings of the grudge match that it was. Willie and Moose went hard early, kept trying to intimidate one another and get in each other’s heads to get a quick quit. But this was not going to be over quickly and it was paced well, and the moves were meticulous, and the way they went from calling the referee in early to pushing him out of the way; just trying to inflict more damage was great.

Moose hit an Avalanche Go To Hell through a table, but Willie wasn’t going to die. Willie got some momentum a bit later, told Moose he’d have to kill him and that was a bit of foreshadowing. Moose was covering the TNA title belt and just chucked it at Willie’s head to give himself some space. Moose did make a reference to his EC3 match when he flipped off Willie right before a chairshot, but the point was the ending. Moose takes control, wraps the chair around Willie’s neck and goes to kill him, chair into chair style.  Rich Swann runs out and screams “What do you want”, Moose stares at him blankly and Rich says he’ll give him a title shot if that’s what he really wants, just stop the madness. Moose puts the chair down, and says “Thank You, I Quit”.

 

Overall Score: 8/10

This card did a great job at slowly building up. First round matches got us to where we needed to be, and they were mostly serviceable. Jake looks to still be reeling, which makes for a solid story of him finding his stride and figuring it out through the year. Blake Christian is a damn star, even though he was runner up, he stood out the most. Ace gets back on track, but we need more Blake in Impact Wrestling.

Jazz definitely brought it tonight as well. The finish was close enough to still leave a small question, but she threw the stiff shots and made that match a hell of a fight. Moose however, proved why he was the main event and also why he’s one of the most improved wrestlers of the last year or so. Moose was never bad, but always lacked something and needed others to bring him to a good match. We got a grudge match, fantastic violence and the fact that Moose had a very specific goal, so once he got what he wanted, the match no longer mattered and he ended it on his terms. Just complete genius.

Surprisingly great ImpactPlus event from Impact Wrestling. Now we get to see if Hard to Kill lives up to Genesis!
